The Raven es una aventura gráfica de los chicos de The Adventure Company (los de mis amados Sherlocks) bastante entretenida.

El juego comienza como una aventura de misterio, un robo, muchos sospechosos, atentados... Y esta primera parte funciona bastante bien porque los misterios llevan la historia bastante bien.

Justo cuando el encadenamiento de misterios comienza a parecer sospechoso (lo típico de acumular misterio tras misterio hasta que todo es demasiado exagerado) entonces cambia la historia e incluso el personaje, que es algo bastante meritorio.

El rejugar la historia desde el punto de vista de otro personaje está bastante bien logrado porque ves como se rellenan los huecos que iban quedando en la primera parte, pero el resultado es que la historia de la segunda parte está peor construida (va más a saltos) y queda una sensación más floja que en la primera.

Por otro lado, los personajes (los importantes) están bien construidos y hay bastantes diálogos para dar un transfondo decente e incluso construir algo de carisma (el malo, por ejemplo).

Lo peor del juego, para mi, es que está bastante mal terminado. Por un lado, directamente hay bugs (cambios de escenario que no se activan y te dejan atrapado, personajes que se quedan atascados).

Por otro lado, las animaciones están muy poco trabajadas. Es curioso porque tienen un sistema de animaciones faciales decente que añade bastantes puntos al juego, ya que permite tener un nivel de actuación a los personajes que ayuda a construir los diálogos. Sin embargo, en otras ocasiones las animaciones se ven artificiales y rompen un poco el juego.

Por último, las voces y la banda sonora están muy logradas. No suelo fijarme en estas cosas pero en este caso me ha llamado bastante la atención, así que supongo que será por algo.

En cuanto al guión del juego, me gustó bastante, aunque los últimos giros de guión me resultan bastante tramposos. Justo lo que uno de los personajes (una escritora que parece un homenaje a Agatha Christie) comenta al personaje protagonista que no debe hacerse en una novela de misterio. Visto en retrospectiva, me parece el mejor diálogo de todo el juego.

Just finished the game and have to give it a good recommendation. The game has a lot of atmosphere for a very good story that is not transparent. I enjoyed the game very much, the graphics were well done and fit the time of the story very well. It's a pretty simple point and click adventure game, although sometimes it can be difficult to figure out how to advance in the game. Some thinking is required. The voice acting was done very well in my opinion and the music through out the game was also very well done. Most of the schievements are pretty easy to get, one is difficult and you may need to find some help to get it done as it is a tricky one to get for most. I have over 20 hours in the game but 3-4 hrs of it were AFK time. It is an enjoyable game without being to stressful so it's fun to just sit down and play it and see what you can figure out and enjoy the story. The only minus I can really give the game is some times the UI can be a bit clunky and getting your character to walk where you want them to can sometime be frustrating but not to the point it wrecks the game. 7/10

I initially bought this game at full price due to the positive early reviews (which were mostly based on the first chapter).

Unfortunately, the game is severely broken for many users and the developers have done little to fix these issues since the game's release. These are not only minor bugs or annoyances, but critical game breaking issues.

I usually love these types of adventure games, but in this case, I have been unable to progress beyond the first chapter (disregard the deceptive amount of hours on record; I have left the game running in the background on several occasions while running errands, sleeping or looking for solutions to the problems I've encountered). It is unlikely that I will get a refund as I bought the game long before Steam's refund policies were changed. Instead, I want to warn future potential buyers of the problems they may encounter.

Take a look at the forum posts below:

Bug thread (13 pages so far): https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/846959998013346908/

Save games disappearing (this is my biggest issue at the moment, as you can see by my posts to the below threads):

https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/34095131971716840/

Linux/Mac issues (there are too many of these threads to list them all):

https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/540736320066916724/
https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/540732596570915707/

https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/846959876007904035/

Etc.

More examples can be found on the game's discussion page and I recommend reading through it. These issues have NOT been fixed, despite the game having been out for two years now.

This leaves the game unplayable for many people; whether you are going to be one of these people depends on your luck and on your operating system. Mac and Linux users seem to have the most issues. As the game is listed as being compatible on these operating systems, this is inexcusable.

As for the game itself (or the little I have been able to experience of it), the story is an obvious homage to Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot. The first chapter starts off slow, but quickly builds up suspense once the titular "Raven" makes an appearance. I have heard that the second and third chapters are a bit of a let down compared to the first chapter's conclusion. The puzzles are alright, but nothing memorable comes to mind. They mainly seem to revolve around using the right object in the right location. I didn't encounter any logic puzzles or truly creative solutions. There is some pixel hunting involved, which I found annoying in the initial train sequence (although it is possible to reveal hot spots in the game by using up "points", this locks certain achievements from being accomplished). The animation and movement in the game is frankly awful, but I was able to ignore it for the most part. It does not really compare well to contemporary medium-high budget games, and as such the standard asking price is a tad steep. I would write more about the game itself, but my save games were erased three times in a row and I have given up on making any progress beyond this chapter.

Basically, if you play on Mac or Linux: DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

If you play on Windows... buy at your own risk. The first chapter seems decent enough; I can't personally comment on the final two chapters, but many reviews online seem to paint them in a rather mediocre light. Even if you do not encounter the technical issues that apply to Mac or Linux users, the game is still rife with random bugs which can impede your progress. I'd wait for a sale, or hope that the developers finally take notice of these issues and release a patch.

Very Hercule Poirot-esc
At least for the first half, where you play like a wannabe Detective.
The second half, you play the same events again, but as the thief.
Full of action, mystery and traditional point-and-click puzzles.
It presents a great story.

An obvious problem, because the inventory pops-up at the bottom of the screen, when you need to go to a area that is achievable by going to the bottom of the screen you have to click in a specific place on the bottom of the screen.
There are also several graphical glitches and game breaking bugs, so save often.

Months after playing through, I still find myself thinking about this game every once in a while. Despite a few buggy mechanics, The Raven is a solid, memorable point and click mystery. Top notch voice acting and well designed puzzles guide you through a wonderfully written story that is both unique and an impressive homage to the traditions and tropes of the mystery genre. If you typically enjoy any of these elements, this is definitely a title to check out.
